Make plans for your next vacation in this three bedroom two bath condo on the north end of Carolina Beach and just across the street from the beautiful Atlantic. Located in the Reefs II complex, you are only a few blocks from Freeman Park, one of the few beach areas you can still drive on.

There are perfect accommodations for your family with the open design that features a well-equipped kitchen for preparing family meals, dining area, and living room. After a day on the beach, sit out on the Oceanview deck with a cool beverage and wash your cares away.

Reefs II is a condominium complex on the north end of Carolina Beach just across the street from the Atlantic Ocean and centrally located between the Carolina Beach Boardwalk and Freeman Park. Beach access is directly across the street, and access to the private pool is included with your reservation.

There is a reason Carolina Beach is such a popular destination. Every Sunday evening from Memorial Day to Labor Day there is a free outdoor family movie at the lake. Also between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the Boardwalk features rides & fireworks for the family. One thing you must do during your stay at Carolina Beach is visit Britt’s Doughnuts, we promise they are some of the best you will ever taste!

It's a short car ride to visit the North Carolina Aquarium on the South side of the island where divers swim with sharks and the kids can enjoy the touch pools. You may consider taking the Ferry across the waterway to downtown Southport for some antique shopping or dining. Historic downtown Wilmington is only about 20 minutes away. Enjoy a day visiting the Battleship North Carolina, walking along the riverfront, dining in one of the many restaurants or enjoying a horse-drawn carriage ride throughout the city. There are many activities that you and your family can do including just sitting on our beautiful beach and relaxing. Come visit us for your next vacation and see all that we have to offer. Any time of the year is a good time to be at "Life's a Beach".

Life's a Beach was a very nice place. We enjoyed our stay. Place was clean and everything was nice. Close to the beach and we loved the pool. My only compilant was that it would be nice to have somewhere to store items from the beach. Its really hard carrying items from the beach each day up the stairs.

Jewel, Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and the property. Some complexes do have storage closets available for guests while others do not or owners restrict the access. We will keep your suggestion in mind. We hope you visit again soon!

Property management staff are always friendly and helpful, super fast response to any questions or concerns. Pool is clean and well kept and is awesome for the little who tires fast in the ocean waves. Kitchen is well stocked. Returning again next year for the third year at this location. Only downside this year was we only had 6 towels to share between 8 people. Definitely not a deal breaker though! Thank you for another great family vacay!

Hi Carson, and thank you for sharing your review. It is wonderful to hear your nice compliments, and we are grateful that you noticed how hard we try to please our guests. We couldn't be happier to know that you are coning back to stay next year, and we want you to remember that we are always available to help you. We're sorry about the towels sets and wish we had known so we could have brought you the two that were missing. Can't wait to see your lovely Family back in Carolina Beach again soon!

Loved staying at this condo. Perfect short walk to the beach. Second floor-not too many stairs. Covered patio with fan. Spacious living room with lots
Of seating. Clean unit. And nice clean pool that was not crowded. Only negative is the mattresses are pretty cheap and not that comfortable. Especially the bunk beds. And the sheets provided are cheap quality. A bit
Rough on the skin. But otherwise enjoyed our stay

Manager's Response

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Ashley, we value your feedback. We'll check those mattresses for age/condition to see if it is time to replace them, but we are thrilled that you found the place to be clean and comfortable. It is surely convenient to the beach and even walkable to downtown. Please make your plans to come back and see us again son.

We picked that property because the proximity to the beach and definitively is just steps away. The property in general is fine however the bed in the master bedroom required an updated, it is very noisy.

Also, you can hear all what’s is happening in the apartment upstairs they were moving furniture all the time.

It is very well equipped, however you need to bring or rent your beach stuff. It is clean and have everything you need to stay away from home.

The pool is small and it wasn’t open even though the property management said it will be open by April unfortunately that didn’t happened and we were very disappointed.

Luis - We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback about your stay at 'Life's a Beach'! As we are a property management company with individual owners of units within a condominium complex, there are things outside of our control when it comes to units within the complex or pools. Hopefully you were able to relax on the beautiful beach, and we sincerely hope you will come back and visit.

We would definitely rent this place in the future. The beach is literally right across this small residential street, as close to beach front without being beach front. Was very convenient for families with children to take a picnic down to the beach, run back for forgotten goggles or change of suits, etc. Its a very short drive to the boardwalk, eating & shopping areas or about a 20 min walk. The apartment was very clean & spacious. The kitchen is fully stocked. There are can openers, pots & pans of all sizes, cheese graters & every utensil. The furniture was sturdy & comfortable, especially impressed with the beds. Ocean can be seen from either balcony.
The neighborhood is quiet. I can understand why there’s a no partying rule put in place. We are early risers & appreciate a good nights sleep. Loved leaving the balcony door cracked open in the master bedroom & falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing.
Bryant customer service was excellent. My children still had remote school assignments to complete each morning before we’d hit the waves. We had an internet issue the when we first got there. I called the next morning at 9am. They resolved the issue by 9:05.
Thanks Bryant for a nice place & a great stay!

Maggie - Thank you for the great review about Life's a Beach! The owners of this condo have truly thought of their guests and what they need to enjoy themselves while in paradise. We noticed you enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen, did you use the new Keurig machine the owners just placed in the condo? Enjoy a hot cup of coffee while relaxing on the ocean side deck listening to the waves crash and enjoying the beautiful views of the Carolina sunrises. Thank you for allowing Life's a Beach to host your vacation! We're looking forward to your next trip to paradise!

Everything as expected!

Rented thru VRBO and all went smoothly. Actual payments, signing agreements, check in and out, the one time we had to call for help from maintenance. Property itself is well taken care of and beautiful and so close to the beach access. The beach area is clean and not overly busy. Pool is nice and clean and the pool guys are super friendly. Nothing bad to say about any of it. We have a large family and we were more than comfortable. Some suggestions is to get a Crock pot and larger skillet for kitchen and a grill would be super nice to have. Not a deal breaker obviously, we are returning next year

Manager's Response

Carson - We're so happy to hear that Life's a Beach was just perfect for your family vacation! Thank you for the feedback concerning the cookware for the kitchen. We will discuss the items with the owner. Grills are not permitted on this property per HOA. Wonderful to hear you also enjoyed our beautiful clean beaches! It helps when tourist/ locals clean up after themselves as well as our wonderful volunteers to walk the beach and clean up trash! Carolina/ Kure Beach is a fantastic family community and we are happy to see we did not disappoint! Thank you for choosing Life's A Beach to host your family vacation! Looking forward to your return to paradise soon!

The house was beautiful the location was perfect and quiet we had no issues other than the water. When we used the showers or sinks it smelled like rotten eggs it would have you gagging trying to take a shower. I called the company and never heard back from maintenance or the manager. But other than that everything was great! Also beautiful inside!

Manager's Response

Casey - unforutanlty being on the beach the warm water tends to have a strong odor to it. We strongly recommend to all our guests, let the hot water run for about 15 minutes and open up windows to rid the smell. Thank you for alerting our office of this issue, the owner is currently working on this issue. Thank you for choosing Life's A Beach for your beach vacation getaway!

We really enjoyed our stay here. You just can’t beat the location.
It’s great to be able to pop back “home” from the beach and come right back.
The condo was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was newly updated.
We would have loved a recliner or one more chair in the den. There were speakers on the patio. It would be great if they were mounted. Smart TVs are great with Roku built in. The kitchen table was huge! Showers work well and it’s always nice having a washer/dryer. Our kids loved the bunk beds! Thank you!
